Subject:Preview only thru system sound?

In Sound Forge 10 when i load a cd into the computer and then click "extract audio from cd" the preview window that appears only plays the tracks thru the system sound,even though i have my external audio interface selected under the preferences in Sound Forge 10.
So, i wind up having to unplug my headphones from my external audio interface and walk over and plug them in to the output on the computers on-board sound in order to hear the tracks.

Am i missing something?

system: Win xp
service pack 2, intel 2.8 dual core
2gb ram
M-Audio Project Mix i/0

In Windows direct all sound to play through your outboard audio interface. You'll also want to turn off all systems sounds - you know those sounds that can happen when you do various tasks in Windows - so they don't interrupt what you're doing when you work with audio.
Then in Device Manager in Windows disable your onboard sound chip (probably a Soundblaster type chip).
